Why didn't pei want to join confederation?

PEI did not enter Confederation with the other Canadian provinces in 1867 (Canada East and Canada West, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia) mainly because it was scared of not being represented fairly. The local government on the island was afraid (due to the very popular rep. by pop. system) that it would have no say if it were part of Canada as a whole. PEI did not join confederation until July 1st, 1873. Also, one of the reasons that PEI joined confederation is that PEI was owned mostley by British landlords witch means that settlers couldn't own their land. To get PEI to join confederation The United Province of Canada promised that they would buy the land off of the British. that is why PEI joined confederation. Also, P.E.I didn't want to join Confederation at first because P.E.I is an island, and the railroads connecting Canada didn't really matter to them, what they needed was a railroad connecting places in P.E.I, but that was mentioned in the Seventy-Two Resolutions. It was only suggested and promised in 1866, but by then it was too late.

Why did Prince Edward Island join Confederation?

I don't believe PEI did, as it was part of Canada, and not the USA. PEI joined confederation as the 8th province. Previously the people had refused to join due to fears of unequal representation, as well as a clear lack of political and economic advantage, since most of their trade was with the USA. They finally agreed in order to abolish absentee landlordism, as well as the debt that the province had accumulated, which would be shouldered by the Canadian Government.
